RARE 23” Antique ROYAL DUX Statue, RETOUR de CHASSE, Young HUNTER & Girl EMBRACE-$622
From the wingtips of the two game birds the boy hunter has slung over his shoulder to the soft curves of his lover’s ankle, this 106-year-old figure has remained in fine condition in spite of its delicate nature and substantial proportions – approximately 23” tall.
FOLK ART Hand Painted PORCELAIN VASE 20” Tall – ROSES – INTRIGING SIGNATURE -$77
I’ve seen Victorian folk art paintings on Bavarian china blanks, Limoges blanks and, most frequently on old crocks. However, this is a first for me, and you’ll see why when we get down to the underglaze backstamp on the bottom.
